At great risk of sounding like a total google fanboi:
We have run metabase for 12 months on WAMP stack, (pc under the desk style) - really like metabase so time to move to a more scalable, reliable, higher performing stack by:
- Migrating our dataset out of mysql and into google biq query (datawarehouse);
- Creating application db on google cloud sql;
- Running metabase .jar via custom docker on google application engine using the new application cloud sql db (have to rebuild users and questions but not many); and
- Pulling the dataset back in from google big query.
I did all this last night and so far it seems a quick and painless upgrade (making use of a 1 year google stack $300 credit).
Thanks to Bede Overend in Melbourne and Rémy David in Paris for the guidance: https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/3983
Note: we have a paid tableau license but prefer metabase right now.
